Got a costume? A dog? A pair of running shoes?

All three will come in handy at the second annual Silicon Labs Sunshine Run on May 3 at Auditorium Shores. The event includes timed and untimed 5K and 10K runs for humans, plus a “Fastest Dog in Austin” division in the 5K (the winner gets a year’s supply of dog food) and an easy 1K race for kids age 12 and under. Teams can compete for prizes including most participants, best dressed, most energetic, most entertaining and most funds raised.

The races start at 7:30 a.m. and Black Swan Yoga will lead post-race yoga. The Nightowls, a 10-piece soul band, will perform afterward.

Entry fee ranges from $15 to $45; fees increase the weekend of the race. To register go here. Proceeds benefit the Austin Sunshine Camps, established in 1928 by the Young Men’s Business League to offer free summer camps and after school care for kids who couldn’t otherwise afford it.
